A fantastically written piece of music,
This review is from: Clockwork Angels (Audio CD)
Unlike a lot of people, I'm quite a young Rush fan (I'm only 18) but in the past 2 years or so, I've fallen in love with Rush because of the sublime way they've told such stories through their music. My favourite albums before this would probably be the era from Fly by Night to Moving Pictures, as well as Presto; however, I was pleasantly surprised by this album as I wasn't expecting it to leave such an impression so quickly. I remember listening to Caravan and BU2B when they came out as singles and thinking, "Hmm... Not bad." Although, as a complete album, I think that the album as a whole is much better than its constituent songs as it tells a brilliant story laced with steampunk and alchemy. Truly a brilliant album and probably one of my favourite Rush albums already.

Reviews like these are getting me genuinely excited about this coming in the post! found both Trails and Arrows a but patchy - bit bland on occasion - but by all accounts this is a real return to inspired form

Damn, I wish I was 18 and having the Rush back catalogue available in this digital age </jealous>
Truly a time "I wish I could live it all again"
Welcome aboard, Karl - what a joy-ride in store you you.
Now, make sure you save your hard-earned money and catch them live. I have only one regret and that is missing the 1978 Farewell to Kings tour - my mother wouldn't let me go (I was only 12 at the time). Go! As many times as your wallet allows. Go into debt -beats buying a house or a car (those things are just temporary). Go see them live - see you there
